# 10 Main Differences
Given below are some of the main differences between Wix and GoDaddy.
1. App Market
Wix has an App Market. It contains a lot of in-built apps as well as third-party integrations. But GoDaddy doesn’t have an App Market. You can easily install many apps for advanced features such as booking, gallery, store, portfolio, marketing, and 600+ features on Wix, but it is not possible on Godaddy. You can use only Godaddy’s basic inbuilt features.
Godaddy website plans are cheaper than Wix. However, Godaddy’s eCommerce monthly pricings are similar to Wix. But Wix offers more eCommerce features than Godaddy with similar pricing.
Both Godaddy & Wix provides 24X7 support & both have great support resources.
Wix has around 500 free templates for building a website. They are categorized in a good manner and every category contains a good number of templates. But GoDaddy has only around 100 templates.
Wix has advanced SEO optimization. You can use in-built as well as third-party SEO optimization tools. But in GoDaddy, only built-in SEO optimization is available. We can’t integrate with any third-party SEO tools.
6. Page Editor
Wix has 5 types of editors, Original 100% Drag & drop, Mobile editor, Editor X, ADI (Artificial Design Intelligence) & Developer mode. All editors are easy-to-use. In GoDaddy, there is no drag-and-drop editor only swiping and also there are a lot of options that are limited.
7. eCommerce Business
Wix is good for Online selling. They are providing plenty of eCommerce features and templates. Wix provides in-built as well as third-party apps for the Online store. But GoDaddy is not that good for eCommerce business compared to Wix. It has so many limitations such as only 50 orders/month for Godaddy multichannel and next month’s renewal price is double! Surprisingly Wix commerce is cheaper than Godaddy.
8. Small Business
Both Wix and GoDaddy provide in-built tools for creating small businesses like Bookings, Appointments, Event calendars, etc. But Wix also has third-party apps for small businesses. GoDaddy only has in-built apps. It doesn’t have any third-party apps.
If you want to showcase your works through websites, then Wix provides you with a lot of Portfolio Templates. It provides many apps like Wix Art Store, Wix Photo Albums, and Design elements like Impressive effects, and roll for various purposes. It also has different types of galleries like Pro Galleries, Grid Galleries, etc. But GoDaddy’s portfolio features are limited. They are also not providing any portfolio-related apps to integrate.
10. Analytics & Tracking
Wix has advanced analytics and tracking. You can also integrate with so many apps for analytics reports. But GoDaddy does not have an in-built tool for analytics & tracking. You have to integrate with Google Analytics, Facebook pixel, etc.

Both website builders are easy to use. No need for any programming to create a website using GoDaddy and Wix. And also you don’t need any technical knowledge. Any non-techies can simply create beautiful websites.
You can create beautiful professional websites for your business, events, eCommerce, your personal portfolio, or even just a school project, etc. using Wix. You can create beautiful customizable websites without any effort at all. Initially, you may find it difficult if you are a beginner. But, Wix will give you a video tutorial step by step once you sign up. And enter the editor. But If you want to create a quick website without any effort, then GoDaddy is a good option for you. You can create beautiful templates very fast using GoDaddy. All you have to do is just choose a category. GoDaddy will give you the right template and content for your business.
How Wix Works?
You can sign in to your account using a Google account, Facebook, or Apple account. After you sign in to your account, Wix will ask you several questions to know more about what kind of Website you are going to build. You can answer those questions or just skip them. After that, you want to choose how you are going to create your website. Either you can create with an editor or Wix will create a website for you by answering those questions using its Artificial Design Intelligence (ADI).
ADI is faster and easier to make your website at first. But you will lose the customization freedom that you have. If you are artistic-minded, then I recommend you choose “Create your Website with the Editor”. Because you will get a lot more freedom of customization, after you are done editing your website, you can check how it looks on the desktop and Mobile. You can adjust the blocks to look good on mobile using the mobile editor. It doesn’t change the desktop view. That is cool.
There are a lot of features and options available in Wix. In the dashboard, all the options are well arranged on the left side. So you can easily navigate from one option to another. You will see Marketing & SEO, Analytics & Reports, Finance, etc. You can also change your site language by using Multilingual. After everything is done, you can publish your site.
Wix provides one more website design tool with advanced design and layouts. It is more responsive to other platforms like Mobile and Tablet when compared to Wix Editor. The main difference between Wix and Editor X is that Editor X has a responsive design. It will show different Nd responsive layouts on different devices.
Mobile Editor: Wix has a mobile editor where you can create mobile-optimized websites. You can optimize your website and make it responsive to mobile devices without affecting desktop devices. You can even hide some desktop elements from mobile devices. Also, you can set up mobile-only elements.
How GoDaddy Works?
After you create your account and sign in to your account, you have to choose a category. There will be some default categories, and also you can type your own category. They are providing a lot of options for you to choose from. Then you have to name your site. It is temporary. You can change that later. That’s it. There is your website with the right template and the right content. You can also change layouts, images, content, etc. if you want. You can add different pages, set your own theme, etc.
There is also a set of templates available. If you want to choose from templates, you can also do that. But there is only limited templates are available. Then you can customize your website the way you want.
The Dashboard of GoDaddy is very simple. They will suggest ways to set up your websites. It will be good if we follow their steps. And also options like Store, Appointments, Marketing, Connections, and setting are present in the dashboard. In Appointments, there are options like Calendar, Services, Categories, Customers, etc are present. In Marketing, Social Media Management, SEO, Email Marketing, etc. are available. You can set up your Shipping, Payments, Tax, Abandoned Carts, etc. from the settings option in the dashboard.
Key Take-Aways: Both website builders are easy to use. But when compared to GoDaddy, Wix is easier and more user-friendly. GoDaddy is a little confusing to understand.

You will get instructions from Wix if you do any mistakes. It is like, they are watching us.

- You can’t add a single image. Instead, you have to select a photo gallery and customize it. [Add section -> Select Image Gallery -> select Photo Gallery -> Select one Layout -> Delete pre-loaded photos -> Add or change the photo you want within the gallery]. That is a time-consuming process.
You can’t change templates once you select a template layout. Instead, you can change the layout of each section. GoDaddy has different layouts for each section. So, you don’t have to worry about changing the template.
Once you are done editing, you can preview your site in desktop mode and mobile mode. The website will optimize for the mobile version automatically. That is great. You don’t have to waste your time optimizing for mobile also. [Because there are a lot of design restrictions to accomplish the responsive design].
